Summer Experiences at Washington University in St. Louis offer academically advanced middle and high school the unique opportunity to prepare for college success. We offer a variety of programs during the summer.
Our five-week academic High School Summer Scholars Program provides an early taste of college life for academically talented students during the summer following their sophomore or junior year of high school. Participants get a head start on college, enrolling in two undergraduate courses chosen from a variety of stimulating introductory Summer School courses. Students choose to live on campus in a secure residence hall or commute from home, and all enjoy a variety of educational, social, and cultural opportunities. This can be a perfect stepping stone to the next stage of their education.
The noncredit High School Summer Institutes provide high school students with an avenue to explore a specialized interest during the summer. Institutes combine traditional class and lab curriculum with organized field trips, guest lectures, and hands-on activities in order for students to gain valuable academic and career experience. Students live in a secure residence hall and join other high school program participants in additional educational, social, and cultural opportunities. Possible topics include medicine, writing, engineering, research, and leadership.
Middle School Summer Challenge combines advanced course work with leadership development. Students choose one course to attend in the morning and participate in a leadership course in the afternoon. This program is designed to expand students’ critical thinking skills in a challenging and innovating environment that includes hands-on learning, field trips, and much more. Residential and commuter options are available.
